I have the same netbook although it started with XP installed. I used Unetbootin (http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/) to create a bootable USB thumb drive from the Ubuntu iso. I then used this thumb drive to successfully install Ubuntu on the netbook (although I retained XP for a dual boot setup). I did not use wubi. You have to press F9 after powerup ...

Try burning the Ubuntu iso on a USB flash device. Restart your computer and boot from the flash drive (you may need to access the boot menu from your BIOS (the screen when you first start up), try smashing F1-F12 upon startup). Install Ubuntu using the entire disk and your Windows 7 will be GONE!

Wubi does not create an actual partition, it installs into a file on your pre-existing partition. Look for it in c:\ubuntu\disks\root.disk (assuming you installed it on drive c).

You can't install Ubuntu 14.04 using wubi because they aren't compatible. You need to create a Bootable USB stick with the Ubuntu ISO.

Option 1: Using "gparted" (Live ubuntu (sudo apt-get install gparted)) (or any disk partitioning tool), clear out one of the NTFS partitions to 'not partitioned', (hopefully that space is at least 18GB), and then proceed to the installation, Linux is usually installed on EXT4 partition and it is not for NTFS partitions. (Remember setting about 1GB of ...

Not the answer you want, but don't even bother with wubi. The ubuntu-in-windows is gonna take hdd space anyways, so you may as well install it on a proper partition instead of using wubi and risking windows messing it up. The Ubuntu Installer is very good, I find, and even setting up a dual boot is pretty painless with their installer.

Should do. WUBI lives entirely within the Windows partition and modifies the Windows bootloader to work. Ubuntu-proper will have its own partition and will move Windows' bootloader off as a secondary bootloader and replace it in the MBR with Grub. To boot to Wubi you'll have to select Windows at Grub and then Ubuntu from Windows' bootloader.

Wubi is not supported for Windows 8 Possible alternatives for you would be dual boot, or installation of Ubuntu in a virtual machine (VMWare or VirtualBox)

Automatic dual boot for the Windows 8 or system based in i386, the answer is the same : download wubi.exe that you wish, and the i386.tar and i386.iso files. Open system terminal window (like ms-dos window) Go to the folder using cd folder command and put wubi.exe --dimagepath=C:\UbuntuImage\ubuntu-1X.XX.XX-wubi-i386.tar.xz (the XX.XX.XX is the verion ...
